Seasons Greetings to all you goldsmiths

A joyful Channukah to you. My I ask a question totally unrelated to jewelry - well I’ll ask anyway. Would it be irreverent to have a menorah in my Christian home?

IMHO, It would be lovely! Chanukah is the Festival of Lights. It is a joyous occasion with lots of food, presents, and love. It is the celebration of a great miracle where oil in a lamp lasted for 8 days, rather than the one it was feared to last for.
Go for it! And have a Merry Christmas, while you are at it!:christmas_tree:,

Judy and all
"If the Menorah brings you happiness & well-being during these festive
holidays…please light your candles!" I light one candle on the first
night, the second night we light 2, and until the last night of Channukah
we light all 8 candles.
The history of this “Celebration of Lights” is when the Maccabees entered
our Temple who then desecrated and destroyed the synagogue. The Rabbis must
have an “Eternal Light” in the sanctuary, burning every day of the year. So
after the enemies left, the Rabbi’s found one little container of oil just
enough for one night… A “Miracle Occurred”, that little vial of oil lasted
for ‘8 days & nights’. In honour of that burning of oil, we, all over the
world celebrate the “Miracle of Lights!”. Some Menorahs are using an
electric bulb, no matter what you use, it’s the remembering the
We put the Menorah near a window, for all to see the lights being lit.
When I light my candles, I let the room be dark and let the candles light
the room. On the last night, I’ll show you all how it looks…such a great
sense of joy…For thousands of years this has taken place…:>) Gerry!
